Editor’s note: This month, we bring you brief reminders from pros around the world about what or who helped them forward in their careers.

I’m grateful for every copy editor who’s saved me from embarrassment; for every photojournalist who’s helped me to see stories in different ways, and for every editor who’s forced me to prove my case.

Most of all, I’m grateful for all the people out there who have trusted me and the institution of journalism enough to share their stories. They’re the real heroes.
